Moments of Science ~ IgNobel 2009 Performance!

Just got back from Harvard's Sanders Theatre where demoguru extraordinaire Daniel Rosenberg and I ran our nth Annual Moments of Science at the IgNobel Prize Ceremony! Two demos this year, modestly aligned with the RISK theme of the Ig's:
  • Golfball Atmosphere representation of gas laws!
  • Tesla Coil exciting a Fluorescent Tube (a.k.a. the GlowBar in homage to Nobelist Roy Glauber who crafted the demo in the first place!-) Thanks to Isabelle R for slipping it to Daniel!
See Daniel's explanations! Someone asked, "Are we Mad Scientists?" "No, Angry Engineers!-)"
